Nice fish!!!
JDTuna thanks for the info! Is there a local store that sells them. Saw that Gamakatsu sells them on their website.

Better off ordering them online bc its damn near impossible to find non-offset circles in trout-applicable sizes in any store. I've tried but haven't gone to some of our more northern site sponsors...just way too far for me when considering fuel cost vs shipping cost of a small package.

Thanks Jigman. Bassproshops.com has Eagle Claw Inline Circle hooks down to size 8. Also found that Amazon has Gamakatsu Inline Circle hooks down to size 6.

Gamakatsu calls them Inline Octopus circle hooks. The Walmart and Dicks in Rockaway carries them. I think Ramsey in Roxbury might too.

I know that I have not posted here in awhile, but I wanted to say hello. Since this post four years ago I learned the basics of fly fishing for NJ trout. Recently, I was able to get a trout trifecta (wild brown, stocked rainbow, and a native brookie) in India Brook. So there are still some brookies left in India Brook. To get the brookie, I had to take Andy's advice and go upstream into the headwaters of headwaters ;-)

Congrats, desi! I have only had luck with browns in india Brook, ive been there numerous times and somedays skunked completely. So that india brook trout slam is impressive. Im looking forward to fishing WTS this winter. I had a lot of fun and challenges last winter.

Thanks tmyorke1. For me fishing dry flies in India Brook was a game changer.
